  1. For this evening we return to Radcliffe on Trent, this time mostly by the river, just across the Trent from Rectory Junction. One of the photos is taken from Cliff Walk in Radcliffe on Trent and shows the Trent in flood. The locations where the other photos near the river were taken from were underwater when that one was taken.

  2. I think one does have a green upper body colour - I think there was a Centro livery like this for a time. Edit This is a second attempt to add information, it seemed to save but obviously did not. West Midlands PTE was established in 1969, from 1990 it operated as Centro, and used that name for rail services operated by British Rail in its area. According to the sources I have found the livery with the green upper part was adopted at the start of 1990, the one in my photo must be a very early repaint. David
  3. This morning's photos were taken at Butterley in the late 70s and early 80s.

  4. Trent Lane crossing today, just east of the site of Trent station on the line to Nottingham. One photos is from 1983, the others are from December 1989 - I can't remember what I was doing there in 1989, I presume I must have been visiting relatives.

  12. Back to 29th May 1991 with a trip southwards to North Lincolnshire. Much of the day was spent at Barnetby. As you might expect with a pre planned day out there was no sun, just lots of cloud.

Oh dear, the edit didn't work so I'l just leave it in. Third edit. For some reason one image had uploaded twice - Very odd. Duplicate now removed (again). David
  13. Trains in 1992 and 1993 at Longhirst today. As you all probably know already Longhirst on the ECML between Morpeth and Alnmouth in Northumberland. It's not far from home so I often went there on Saturday mornings and on days when I wasn't working.

  15. A few photos on the Southern this afternoon, this time at Clapham Junction. The ones from November 1987 were taken on a very gloomy day with not much light. I'd travelled to London with some friends on an excursion train from Newcastle with the intention of spending the day taking railway photos. The ones in July 1988 were taken in some free time before staying overnight in London and then flying to Switzerland for a month's holiday looking at Swiss Railways. I wonder if I've got the emu classes right this time?
